It's fitting that Smith was the one to tease the trailer, as he also shared the first photo of the cast on set in September 2017. Aladdin plans to uses these wishes to win over the handsome Princess Jasmine, but the evil Jafar has other plans.

With the release just over six months away, the first poster has now been revealed - sure to evoke intense feelings of nostalgia for anyone with fond memories of the 1992 version. The late Robin Williams voiced the legendary Genie character in one of his most memorable roles. The direction of the film is being handled by Guy Ritchie. The film is directed by Guy Ritchie and although his previous films like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. underperformed critically and financially, the iconic director is giving the realm of big-budget adaptations another shot with next year's Aladdin.
